East Toledoan held in Monroe Street bank robbery

A 52-year-old East Toledo man was in the Lucas County Jail last night on a charge of robbing the Charter One Bank branch at 4260 Monroe St. of an undisclosed amount of cash.

Lesemes Rivera, who listed 730 Woodford St. as his address, was arrested late Friday.

Arraignment is scheduled for tomorrow in Toledo Municipal Court.

He was arrested by Toledo police near Alexis Road and Lewis Avenue.

Mr. Rivera is accused of walking into the West Toledo bank about 12:50 p.m. Thursday and demanding money. After the teller complied, the robber fled with the money, the FBI said.

Authorities refused to say whether the robbery involved a weapon.
